The ticket-seller at the station closes window at 5.45pm and runs towards home praying that the ‘Lady in White sari’ should not come his way.
An eeriness and spookiness in the air surrounds the railway station of Begunkodar – the Ghost station of India. The station is supposedly haunted by a lady in White sari since 1967.
After it’s inauguration in 1960, it came as a big relief to the nearby villages. They had their own station near village and it was a big solution for their commutation problems. But this joy was short lived.
In 1967, a railway employee mentioned that he saw a lady in white sari dancing on the railway tracks. A few days after this revelation, he died. The mention of a woman in sari on railway tracks and the sudden death of the railway employee created terror amongst villagers.
A rumor spread throughout the area about the supposed ghost sighting on this tiny station. Panic gripped the area and people started avoiding the station. There were even reports of people being sucked in towards passing trains. The villages and other people started taking detours to avoid going near to the haunted station. It was believed to be under the ‘grip of evil spirits’. Soon, It was dejected and deserted. Further to this, trains stopped taking halt at this station.
The station employee who replaced the dead man apparently stopped coming to work four-five days later.
Surrounded by paddy fields, with no signs of human life evident for miles, the station and its building look strange and forbidding. Over the time, the station won the tag of being ‘a Haunted station’ to ‘One of most haunted railway stations’ in the world. The became a scary place among the villagers.
The haunted station was left deserted for decades until in 2009, Mamta Bannerjee decided to reopen the station for common people. People danced in joy upon the arrival of the first train in five decades. In the last few years, a total of only 5 trains halt at this station with last one halting at the 5.45 pm. Soon after this, as darkness spreads over the area, the station dips under the spookiness.
